Pro Grapplers Episode 65: Slater By Proxy

Diamond Dallas Page, Karl Malone, Dennis Rodman, and Hollywood Hulk Hogan pose for the cameraIt’s winter, and you know what that means: the flu is here! Enzo lays down, but Strowman refuses to job to influenza and the show goes on! The guys haven’t seen Wrestle Kingdom yet, so they’re left to ponder the questions left by the WWE: Can we do something interesting with Hardy and Wyatt now? Is Sexy Dana Brooke sexy? Can we make the Miztourage and actual, functioning tag team? Could Lesnar BE more checked out? Could Jason love Karl Malone’s WCW stuff more? Can we Bexplode everyone? Where do we watch the Mixed Match Challenge again? And just what is Daniel Bryan up to?

Pro Grapplers Episode 64: Blondie McBounce-Bounce

Mudflap girl with automatic weaponCelebrate the new year with a new episode of Pro Grapplers! It’s been a while, but we’re barreling towards the Royal Rumble, and the various stories are taking shape. We’re still thankful that every day is Rusev Day, but can we trust WWE to take it more seriously than they did the Fashion Police? Also, is Shane just a dick, or is something more sinister coming from his rivalry with Daniel Bryan? Matt Hardy is now Woken, but will he ever do more than just laugh a lot? Will we ever find a reason to hate Samoa Joe? And can this please, PLEASE be Kane’s final shot at a title?

We’re hyped for the new women on both Raw and SmackDown, and getting back down to business has already served stars like Joe, KO, and Zayn well. Also, Steve was blissfully unaware that Kid Rock had anything to do with SS, Jason is happy with the Asuka booking (looks strong!), Braun deserves an Oscar, SmackDown returns to its days of copying Raw, shilling for the Shop, and OMG IT’S ALMOST WRESTLEMANIA SEASON AAAAAAHHHHHHH

Pro Grapplers Episode 62: Took His Balls And Went Home

James Ellsworth, professional wrestler

As we say goodbye to the chinless coward, James Ellsworth, we also say hello to a weekend of WWE goodness!

  • Will the team of Gulak and Enzo prove too much for Kalisto? (Yes)
  • Who will fill the mystery spot on Team SD: Women’s Division? (Paige)
  • Cash-in happening? (No, but yes)
  • Will The Usos unfinished business keep them from victory? (Yes)
  • Will The Shield win? (Certainly)
  • Will Styles survive Survivor Series? (Yes, but he won’t win)
  • Will we like Jason Jordan? (Nope)
  • Who has more liabilities going into the SS match? (Raw)

Also, India is getting a heaping helping of HHH, Lucha Underground will have a reduced budget next season (but Steve doesn’t think it will hurt things), Starrcade is a show we want to see (but won’t get to), and Jason really think you should be watching Total Divas (but totally gets why you’re not).

Pro Grapplers Episode 56: More Like Jinder Mah-balls

Shane McMahon vs. Kurt Angle at King of the RingRaw didn’t have much this week, but if you can’t get behind a slow build to a Shield reunion, there’s nothing you’ll like on the WWE main roster this week. Meanwhile, Hell in a Cell is tomorrow we don’t really care because: one or both of the Hype Bros might turn, Roode’s entrance will outdo Ziggler’s, Orton will have an Orton-ass match, The Usos and New Day will steal the show, Shane/KO will end badly, and we hope the U.S. and WWE Championships swap places. Finally, should we care about what’s going on with Bray? History should steer you on this one. Enjoy the Cell and hope for no Hell!
